We appreciate your continued support and interest in the 2019 Hitting League.

This year NWDS is streamlining the signup, communication, and payment process.  We are doing this through a wonderful tool-Team Snap.


When you register online.  You will have one “Adult/Coach” from each team register the entire team.  You will have the option to pay in full online or you can pay in full the first day of the hitting league.  (VIP-This year we will only be accepting one check/cash/payment for each team.  The coach of each team will collect the payments from other players and make a whole payment).  This helps streamline the process so we are not running around for a single check.  


The only stipulation for full payment is if you would like to be placed individually on an NWDS Draft team, just let Clark Knappenberger clark@northwestdiamondsports.com or call/text works 503.734.5753 (preferred method of communication) know if you would like to be placed on a team and he can take care of that for you.


When you start to put your team together on Team Snap, you must have at least 3 players emails/contact info or you will not be able to continue with full registration.  Names and emails can be added at a later date, but getting as much information within the registration streamlines communication for the upcoming weekends for all parties involved.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out to Clark Knappenberger and you will be taken care of promptly.

Let’s get in on!
